This is good for when you get off the ferry and want an overnight stop. However they would not let us book so you have to hope there is a pitch. There were quite a few left when we got there. The restaurant is very reasonably priced. Showers were fine with plenty of free hot water. Only drawback for us... More

We used this site at the beginning of our 4 week trip through Spain and France.It is handy for the ferry from Portsmouth.We liked the pitches and it was plenty big enough for our 7 metre long motorhome.Each pitch had it`s own sink and electric point.It had a shop and a bar also.The town was quite a walk from the...

Spent three nights here in late September. Very handy for ferry to Portsmouth (20mins). Very pleasant staff, as it was late season we were allowed to park our car on the pitch next door. Also each pitch has it's own electric point, and sink ! My only criticism was on one day the showers were only luke warm. Very close... More

Used this site as a close stop over off evening ferry. Pitch was about 8 metres by 4 metres wide, my motorhome is nearly 8 metres long, so very tight, and no bigger pitches. A group of spanish young men carried on all evening and very late into the night. My wife hated it. Facilities were very basic. Pleased to... More

I used this camping site at the start and finish of a four week cycletour, it was one of the best, probably the best camp site I used. The tent camping area has good flat areas with nice mowed grass and soil you can get tent pegs into, both rare in Spain and there was shade and wind protection from... More

Last week in May and easy to get to from ferry which arrives early evening. Very friendly front desk with good English. Site is clean and well maintained but they only take cash, no cards accepted. Also no discount despite restaurant and pool closed.

We were lucky this site was still open. It closed on the 14th October for the winter. A lot of things were no longer availible but the site was very clean and well run. It was great to know that we were situated to catch the ferry. The reataurant across the road was outstanding and we did a beautiful walk... More

Convenient for ferry but otherwise disappointing. No individual wash cubicles, no hot water in wash basins, showers locked until 8am, no hooks in wash block, no site lighting, cold water only for dish washing. Cleaners were washing down the toilet blocks just at the time everyone was getting up in the morning, so everywhere was wet. High hedges so claustrophobic... More

We stayed for a couple of nights here with our camper van and tent at the end of our 2 week holiday touring around Spain, when we were in dire need of a bit of rest and relaxation after having driven quite a few miles across the country during our trip! We certainly got it here! We were lucky and... More

Just returned from a fortnight at Cabo Mayor booked through Brittany Ferries. Hired a "bungalow" which was very basic but clean and adequately equipped- no television but that was a blessing. Staff are friendly, pool and bar are adequate. Camp shop provides basics . Views fro nearby lighthouse and bar are stunning as are those from walks around the bay.... More
